Using Microsoft backup I do a full backup each week followed by a differentil every day to the same file on the hard drive.  This has worked fine on two computers that i use this on but in the last couple of weeks it has started asking if it can use the media and so because I dont look at these computer often then my backups are not happening.

Is there a recent patch that has changed some thing???

None of the recent patches affect the backup utility, assuming your dropping your backups on the local computer look at how much free space you have left on them....If it doesn't have enough room, or it can't "see" the drive it will default back to asking for media
